Dhammakaya Meditation Classes with Robert Mawson Now at Human Bodyworks Massage Therapy and Healing Arts Center in Hastings on Hudson, NY

Robert Mawson

Robert Mawson has taught meditation to thousands of people around the world, including international civil servants and diplomats at the United Nations. He teaches meditation as a tool to activate the power of one’s natural healing force and overcome pain and suffering. Robert, who suffered a great deal of pain in his life due to physical ailments, credits his deep meditation practice with his own survival and quality of life. When Robert needed a heart transplant seven years ago, television’s Dr. Mehmet Oz asked to perform the operation, which was filmed on the Discovery Channel, to see if Robert’s meditation practice would make a difference in his recovery and survival. According to the reports, it did.

Robert is one of only two westerners certified to teach an advanced form of Buddhist meditation. This summer, he will teach an ongoing meditation class at Human Bodyworks Massage Therapy and Healing Arts Center in Hastings on Hudson, NY. The Monday night class, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., begins July 12.
